A Problem of Memory:
This week was intense. I know I say this all the time, but gosh. There was a lot going on in A Problem with Memory, but it all seemed to fit. There are still very high emotions from the last episode at the Seelie Court and it’s not going to go away anytime soon. Clary is trying to talk to Simon, Jace is trying to talk to Clary and Simon is avoiding everyone. Simon turns down a dark path and makes A Problem with Memory so true.
While the tension is hitting boiling point between those three, Valentine’s transfer is imminent and the whole Institute is on edge. Plus Sebastian is up to his usual tricks.
Clary and Simon
A lot of A Problem with Memory focused on Clary and Simon’s relationship and how they are going to go on after last week. To those that have read the books a lot of the tension between these two – we knew about. However, it was hard to see. I love the friendship between these two and to see them both so distraught was heartbreaking. Nevertheless, I felt that both Clary and Simon grew in this episode and I hope to see more of that.
Simon had it real hard this episode. We get to see another side of him, his vampire side really comes out and while I didn’t love seeing it. Seeing him be a vampire was great. We also get to see a side of the shadow world that we haven’t seen before. A side that is horrible and dangerous.
Wow. Wow. Wow. This episode the viewer really got to see the side of Sebastian that we all hate. We see that he is deceiving and will stop and nothing to get what he wants. He is horrible and it was great to see that.
Readers would know what he is like, but the show really took that and created this character that is very much Sebastian.
I am very confused. Like I don’t know where they are going with this. I really don’t. I am happy to see what they do. But I am a little confused.
I enjoyed this episode. There was a lot of character development and tension that really grew in A Problem with Memory. The tension between Clary, Simon, and Jace is growing, but I am excited to see where they go. Sebastian – holy. Excited to see where this season goes, only 5 episodes left I think.
